About the Restoration.
With great care we removed the glass plate from the case and were happy to find that the backing was paper and not totally stuck to the glass. Only small pieces remained after removal.
Then a high resolution scan was made.
The negative suffered from severe mold, dirt and oxidation damage resulting in a darkened and muddy image.
The physical damage was repaired digitally almost pixel by pixel with Photoshop.
Tone and contrast adjustments were made to return it to its original clarity.
At the very last the rosy cheeks were painted back in.
The end product was an 8X10” custom print made by Picture Renewal.
